Zotero: Adding “Advance online publication” to APA reference

For those of you who use Zotero as your go-to pdf and reference manager, you may have encountered problems with citing advance online publications as needed in APA style. I’ve learned the secret. Here’s the citation I am aiming to create using Zotero

Kumar, A., & Epley, N. (2022). A little good goes an unexpectedly long way: Underestimating the positive impact of kindness on recipients. Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. Advance online publication. https://doi.org/10.1037/xge0001271

To get that “Advance online publication” inserted before the doi, find the Extra field in your Zotero citation. In that field, copy/paste this text: {:status: Advance online publication}

Click off the field to save it. That’s it. Zotero is now ready to produce your correctly formatted reference.

Side note, I found the answer in a 2016 Zotero forum. And that, my friends, is how far behind the times I am. In 2020, someone asked in the forum if there is now an easier way to do this. Nope, still isn’t.
